If living in surroundings and/or with people who you perceived and believed were unsafe or dangerous is part of your life history, you’ve experienced and survived trauma.
Yet, we all have different thoughts and beliefs about what trauma is, whether or not we’ve really experienced it, and if it has or how it has affected us. Maybe you are asking yourself whether or not you could benefit from or need trauma therapy.
The medical and mental health field understands trauma very differently today then it did 10, 20, or even 30 years ago. We understand more about what trauma not only does to our human spirit, but also what changes and harmful effects trauma can cause to our brain, body, and mind when we’ve experienced it.
